Guam is one of the largest islands in Micronesia and was formed while the Pacific and Philippine tectonic plates collided with each other. Languages spoken on this tropical island include Chamorro (official language) and English. It is, politically, owned by North America and is the 32nd largest island in the United States. Although the huge island belongs to the United States, there are debates regarding where Guam is actually located continent-wise. Geographically, it is closest to Asia but it is not on the Asian continent, nor the plate. From Guam, it takes only three hours to get to Asian cities like Tokyo and Manila or five hours to Seoul or Taipei. It is also near Australia but there are disagreements that it is on the Australasia continent. Flights to Sydney or Auckland take around five hours by airplane. Some argue that the island is situated on the American continent while others claim that it is not located on a particular continent at all. Rather, it is based on a quasi-continent called Oceana; this explanation being that Guam is located in the North Pacific Ocean in Micronesia, a subregion of Oceania. As you can see, debates around this topic are tireless. Due to its ideal location, Guam is seen as the perfect hub for access to the regions of West Pacific, Asia, Australia etc. The tropic island enjoys spectacular coastlines of glowing white sandy beaches and beautiful, sunny weather.
